Lebanese outfit sandmoon offers an original take on indie folk-pop, infusing it with subtle Middle-Eastern intonations and melancholy, and a certain timelessness.
Singer-songwriter Sandra Arslanian, who initiated the project, was born in Lebanon, raised in Belgium and has Armenian roots – a contrasted blend that is perceptible in the music. “One of the more alluring outfits to emerge in the region over the past decade” according to Cairo Scene, a leading regional online platform.
They released a first album “Home” in 2014, an EP “#IntheEnd” in 2016 and in 2018, a 3-song EP “Beirut-Berlin Session” produced by Victor Van Vugt (Nick Cave, PJ Harvey…).
“Characterized by sophisticated orchestration and folk-infused songwriting, Middle-Eastern inspired elements supporting Arslanian's sweetly quavering voice,” wrote IndieShuffle.
“Arslanian herself invoking a bit of Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell with her vocal and lyrical stylings,” according to RBMA Radio.
“Each release brings slightly different colors and emotions – but always great melodies,“ wrote Beehype.
In 2016, sandmoon also wrote the original soundtrack to Lebanese director, Philippe Aractingi’s feature film ‘Listen’, which received the Award for Best Soundtrack at the Lebanese Movie Awards 2017.
Sandmoon is currently recording a second album with producer Fadi Tabbal at Tuneforks Studio. “Commotion” will be released in 2019. Stay tuned.
